Question about 1991 Honda Accord
I was driving the other day back from the airport and my battery light as well as the transmission light came on. One of the belts under the hood started to squeal when the battery light came on. It is a standard transmission and i have never had any problems. Upon opening the hood i noticed that the alternator belt was almost completely gone, which replacing the belt solved the problem. I am still having an issue with the transmission light comming on after about 5 mins of driving. Whe the light comes on the engine starts to studder a little and will sometimes shut off when i pull up to a stop light or sign for too long, the odometer will also jump back and forth sporadically. In addidion to that, the speedometer stopped working and just sits idle at 0.
You say "standard transmission?" Do you mean "standard" as in "manual/5 spd./'stick-shift'?" transmission?
Either way, if you replaced the alternator belt and the battery light went away and the car doesn't sputter or stop, then it's the "speed sensor" on the transmission itself. The car will still drive, but the speedometer cannot read how fast the car is going (in RPM's as well).
